This is absolutely the definitive rendering of this show. To echo what some other reviewers have said, this show clearly isn't the best of the best performance-wise -- it's a solid example of an early Brent-era show. But the aural qualities make it an extremely special listen, especially for those of us who've collected hundreds of shows over the years and are taken by the nuance of the playing -- Bobby's fills, massive Phil-bombs, the squeak in Jerry's voice or extra crunch in his guitar that can get lost after a couple of generations of copies (I'm listening to Black Peter right now, which features squeak and crunch galore!)
I generally don't favor Matrix recordings over a solid sbd, but this one may make me go back and take a listen to some others.

The evolution of taping!
I'm gonna' give this one 5 stars, not because it's a 5 star show, but because of the technological advances of the taper commmunity who have made recordings like this possible! It's as close as you're gonna' come to being back there!
Great sound quality in every regard, yet you pick up just enough noise from the crowd to tap into the energy & vibe of the those who were there! Truly excellent, & perhaps the future of taping.
Put on your head phones, fire one up, & close your eyes, & in your mind at least, re-visit those happy, crazy days.
Thanks to all who made this possible--very much appreciated!
